'm using them for the rest of the show. thank you, greg. >>> boehner ripped into president obama, speaker boehner calling the white house fiscal plan a joke. senator ron johnson is on the budget committee. he joins us. good evening, sir. >> greta, how you doing? >> greta: very well, and calling the plan a joke, i guess he is not going to beat around the bush for us. >> unfortunately, greta, president obama pretty well holds all the cards in this negotiation. if he wants to have tax increases or tax rates go up, i don't see how republicans can stop him, you know, because everybody's taxes are going to increase if congress does nothing, and president obama is the only person that can sign a bill into law and quite honestly, senator harry reid is the only person in the senate that can pass a bill in the senate as well. it sounds like people like howard dean want everybody's taxes to go up. maybe we should feel fortunate that president obama only wants the top two% to g two percent t. >> greta: do you anticipate republicans will vote for a rate increase if this should come to a vote? >> i don

perplexed. why world the white house consider closing president obama's official 1-20 january 20th swearing in to a press pool? what's this all about? >> the presidential inaugural committee put out a list this year this week that described the inauguration ceremony, formal one, official one which takes place on sunday as being private. and when press people ask about what the private meant, they said a decision had not been made yet on coverage for that ceremony. that's not the big public one that takes place on monday the 21st but the official one on sunday. i don't understand why there is any discussion. if the president's inauguration official inauguration is not a public event, what is? i was covering the white house in 1985 when the same situation came up with president reagan. his big ceremony was on monday but he was privately sworn in on sunday. there was a full press pool in there to see that and record it, including photographers. and i hope that this white house decides to follow that same course. >> okay. susan page, your many followers are also probably chiming in as well with

with the president, house speaker john boehner says the white house is stone walling. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house is has wasted another week. >> reporter: this morning in his weekly address, president obama is holding a hard line on raising rates for the wealthy. >> and if we're serious about protecting middle-class families, then we're also going to have to ask the wealthiest americans to pay higher tax rates. that's one principle i won't compromise on. >> reporter: but how much higher could be the key. the top tax rate is set to rise from 35% to 39.6% on january 1st. when asked if a middle ground could be found, both boehner and biden showed some wiggle room. >> the top brackets have to go up. it's not a negotiable issue. theoretically we can negotiate how far up. >> reporter: at another local restaurant, the owner has seen enough of washington gridlock. >> i wish those lawmakers would get their [ bleep ] together and get it done and try to help everybody. it would be good if they could do it before the holidays are over
